We had an excellent Tote & Gloat today - it didn't rain, so we didn't have to worry about the speakers not being heard, there was a great array of Happy Villages and Accidental Landscapes for people to view as they came in the door, lots of challenge quilts, a fantastic mix of vendors and an on-site cafe.
Our guest speaker was Sandy Corry from Australia. She had a beautiful display of her quilts, many of which have won prizes. She also judged our challenge quilts and because there was only one entry in the group quilt an extra prize for 3rd place was made in the Advanced Category, and I won it!! with this little quilt!
I was so surprised because there were so many fantastic entries. But I had fun, and if you click on it to enlarge it you will see some pretty good quilting and innovative ways of joining the blocks together - so you see, you just don't know how things are going to be judged, so take the risk, jump in and try a challenge!
